Here's a bittersweet scene. It seems that we strayed too far from the established vehicle route, and we found ourselves paying for our chosen photo perch on a nearby rock outcropping. Much to his credit, the forest ranger was polite, friendly, and even offered to help us find legal scenic spots for our next photo shoot. Our conversation was dominated by truck and camera talk. We've definitely encountered our share of grumpiness in uniform, but on the whole we've found that forest rangers, cops, and highway patrol officers are good people, too.
